Australian Cotton Conference registrations now open

Jun '10
“Value for money” was one of the core aims of the Australian Cotton Conference committee this year, with registrations now open to all delegates at website.

“I think the rates there speak for themselves. This conference is well and truly priced to achieve maximum participation across industry and our supply chain,” Ms Byrne Morrison said.

“To add further value, 'Earlybirds' – who register before July 1 - can save a further $25 off our full rate, and there are discounts of 10% for multiple registrations.

“Given the line up of high profile speakers and the networking opportunities the conference presents – the rates we have on offer represent outstanding value at around half the cost of comparable agricultural industry conferences,” she said.

Judging Underway in the 2010 Australian Cotton Industry Awards

Despite another difficult season in many cotton growing valleys, entries in the 2010 Australian Cotton Industry Awards were again very strong, with judging across five categories now underway.

Finalists are due to be shortlisted by a panel of industry judges by the end of this month, with on-farm judging across seven cotton properties planned for mid-June.

Finalists will be announced in the coming weeks, with the winners revealed at the 2010 Australian Cotton Industry Awards Dinner and Presentation on the Gold Coast on the 12 August, a culmination of the Australian Cotton Conference.
